Dreading the onset of winter? We’re feeling a little more prepared thanks to these cold weather essentials from our good friends at SmartPak. Here are six steps to staying warm this winter:
Step 1: Start with a base layer.
And no, we’re not talking about the bulky waffle-weave long johns you wore as a kid. Under Armour HeatGear Authentic Tights fit easily under your breeches to create the ultimate high-performance base layer, offering comfort and added compression to keep you dry and warm.
Step 2: Find a great pair of winter breeches.
It’s harder than it sounds, we know — many of them are either too stiff, too baggy, too slick, too thick, or too weird-fitting to be appealing. Allow us to introduce you to SmartPak Winter Full Seat Pull on Tights and SmartPak Winter Knee Patch Pull on Tights. They look great, feel great and will keep you warm in the saddle all winter long.
On the coldest of cold winter days, add one more outer layer — the SmartPak Winter Overpant — for total protection from the elements.
Step 3: Layer, layer, layer!
How to do so without looking and feeling like the Stay-Puff Marshmallow Man? Stick with layers that are lightweight and flexible yet warm, like the Under Armour ColdGear Cozy Neck.
Step 4: Give cold feet the boot.
The Solstice Winter Boots by SmartPak are designed for all-day, waterproof warmth, featuring a rugged, chunky outsole that offers great traction in winter’s worst weather and a cozy faux-fur lining. Available in five different styles:
Step 5: Top it all off with a snuggly coat.
